Democratic Senate candidate Barbara Bollier talks gun confiscation

October 13, 2020 - 8:45 am

Gun confiscation has become a topic of the Kansas race for the U.S. Senate between Republican Roger Marshall and Democrat challenger Barbara Bollier.

Bollier at a Kansas City event said that she has an adult daughter who lives in Australia, and that a law forcing owners of 700,000 guns to sell them to the government is “this amazing thing.” “They have no guns,” Bollier told the audience. “They don’t allow them. They just took them all away. And you know what? It’s pretty darn safe.”

The video below is from the Oct. 3 event. Bollier’s spokeswoman released longer audio from the same event in which she said she supports the Second Amendment and that she used to go hunting with her father. Bollier did later tweet: “I do not support gun confiscation. I never have. I never will.”

Bollier did bring up licensing and training requirements for gun owners. Kansas law allows adults to carry weapons openly, and it allows them to carry concealed firearms without a permit, a policy Bollier opposed as a legislator when it was enacted in 2015.

Bollier’s remarks on guns first were reported Sunday by “The Washington Free Beacon.”
